Karen Avraham, Ph.D.

Professor, Department of Human Molecular Genetics & Biochemistry; Vice Dean for Preclinical AffairsTel Aviv University

The team in Karen Avraham's laboratory at Tel Aviv University works to understand the molecular basis of deafness. We carry out genomic evaluation of inherited hearing loss and study genetic regulation of the function of the inner ear. We use advanced genomic technologies, including hybridization capture and deep sequencing, and model organisms to accomplish these goals.
